Lost Lake

13481275Suley, Georgia, is home to Lost Lake Cottages and not much else. Which is why it's the perfect place for newly-widowed Kate and her eccentric eight-year-old daughter Devin to heal. Kate spent one memorable childhood summer at Lost Lake, had her first almost-kiss at Lost Lake, and met a boy named Wes at Lost Lake. It was a place for dreaming. But Kate doesn't believe in dreams anymore, and her Aunt Eby, Lost Lake's owner, wants to sell the place and move on. Lost Lake's magic is gone. As Kate discovers that time has a way of standing still at Lost Lake can she bring the cottages—and her heart—back to life? Because sometimes the things you love have a funny way of turning up again. And sometimes you never even know they were lost . . . until they are found.

My Thoughts on the Book

There is always something magical about Sarah Addison Allen's books but this book is lyrical. A wonderful story that centers around a mother and daughter recovery from the loss of their husband and father but the other characters in the book have such and important role to say they are supporting characters would be unfair. Sarah weaves past and present, hopes and dreams into this story so well it almost sings to you. Some books you read and you enjoy the story, others flood your senses and you are immersed in the story and world from the beginning, this is one of those stories. I loved every single character and every story line, I even have a new love for alligators. Thank you Sarah.
